Goodman Group announced that it has completed a 1.2 million-square-foot logistics facility in El Monte, California.
The new facility has from 227,850 to 935,657 square feet of occupancy-ready space that is designed for e-commerce industry needs.
“The El Monte facility has been engineered with our customers in mind. Over the past three months, Goodman has seen increased demand for both temporary and permanent space from customers in varying industries, particularly related to e-commerce operations. We understand that consumer needs and demands are growing more rapidly than ever before. Companies are now required to be faster, more agile and quick to adapt operations. Through the El Monte facility’s design configuration, we can provide companies with the space needed to help successfully deliver products to consumers when they need it,” said Anthony Rozic, CEO of Goodman North America.
“The El Monte Logistics Center is another building block in our company’s global gateway city strategy to better serve customers through urban logistics sites that are close to consumers,” he added.
Conveniently located less than one mile from Interstate 10, the Goodman Logistics Center, El Monte is four miles west of the Interstate 605, 13 miles from Downtown Los Angeles and 24 miles from the Ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach.
The logistics facility in El Monte features 36-foot clear height, a feature that has the potential to increase capacity by 10 to 25%, cross-dock configuration, which can help reduce transportation costs and maximize handling efficiencies, 185-foot concrete truck courts, 536 car spaces and 164 trailer stalls for easier access and manoeuvring space. The development also offers 24/7 operations, site security, 147 dock doors, offices, ESFR sprinkler system and a LEED-certified shell to provide customers with the space and features needed to operate and execute its supply chain safely and efficiently.
